The original reg no was something with APX. Sometime in the early 1980's the AP RTO came up with a rule asking all cars with regestration numbers issued prior to a certain date to come forward and have their cars re regestered.
Some did and some didn't and my grand uncle was one of them. He was really passionate about his cars and wouldn't even let his son drive them. He also had a mid fifties Fiat single owner which is still with the family. We have two of these cars to be correct.
Let me tell you an interesting fact about he Ford.
When muslim families wed their daughters in Hyderabad it is a custom to give the newly weds complete furnishings etc to start a new home.
Meraj Yar Khan, my grand uncle was with the Postal Service in a job that was open to periodic transfers.
He requested his father in law that instead of buying the household items he should be given the money instead to buy a new car.
Thus the Ford was bought and remained with him all his life. His garage at home in Hyd was a treaure trove of parts and tools as he worked on the car himself.
All was either given with the car or sold to the scrap merchants.
Don't know about the Chevy convertible though. It was not from my family.
